    Another day, another bad idea by college football | Styles' role for 2024?

    Another day, another bad idea by college football | Styles' role for 2024?

    It appears as though college football is close to moving its early signing period up three weeks in December, which in our opinion does nothing to solve the problem. On today's show, Jonah Booker and Dave Biddle delve into that, talk about Sonny Styles' likely role for the 2024 season, what we think will happen with the quarterback depth chart in 2024 and much more.
    That is coming your way on the Friday 5ish.

    Crystal clear? | Hartline's typecasting | Jordon rules

    There's a buzz when it comes to Ohio State football. Offseason additions and retentions have confidence peaking in these parts.
    Rest on your laurels time? Hardly. Recruiting trail effort levels are spiking and that 'buzz' seems contagious.
    Who (else) will Ohio State land in the Class of 2025? Are there defensive linemen and running backs in particular we want you to know about?
    Absolutely.
    Do we have right guys here to let you know all about them? 
    You know we do. Bill Kurelic and Mark Porter are back with all the knowledge you can handle and more.
    Spend 5ish with us this a.m., 'Nutters!

    Laurinaitis, Guerrieri make impressive impressions | The problem with the CFP's '5+7' format

    Laurinaitis, Guerrieri make impressive impressions | The problem with the CFP's '5+7' format

    Ohio State's newest defensive position coaches -- James Laurinaitis and Matt Guerrieri -- met with the media yesterday and they were nothing short of extremely impressive. What were our main takeaways from both Q&A sessions? Laurinaitis basically said Cody Simon is locked in as a starting linebacker. Who will start alongside of him? As for the safeties, Guerrieri is inheriting a proverbial gold mine with the talent in his room with the likes of Caleb Downs and Lathan Ransom. As for Sonny Styles, will he be in Guerrieri's room this year? Or Laurinaitis'? Time will tell on that one, but both coaches had interesting things to say about the talented junior.
    Also, the CFP made its "5+7" format official on Tuesday. We see one major problem with it. We discuss in detail on the show, but the gist of it is we do not think the ACC and Big 12 should be on equal footing with the Big Ten and SEC when it comes to automatic berths and first-round byes. We explain further.
    Matt Baxendell and Dave Biddle discuss all of that and more on the Wednesday 5ish.

    Are Ohio State's linebackers national championship-caliber?

    Are Ohio State's linebackers national championship-caliber?

    It is going to be a fun day on the Ohio State football beat as the media will interview freshly-minted Ohio State linebackers coach James Laurinaitis, as well as new safeties coach Matt Guerrieri this afternoon. Today's show will focus mostly on the Buckeyes' 2024 linebacking corps, specifically whether this group is good enough to get the Buckeyes where they want to go. Who will be the two starters? Who will be the top backups? Is Sonny Styles definitely going to move down to LB, or might he stay at safety? Or might he play several different positions?
    Dave Biddle flies solo on today's show to discuss all of that, take a look at Ohio State's 2024 safeties and more. 
    All of that is coming your way on the Tuesday 5ish.

    Animal instincts | 2024 defense shaping up to be elite | 2-year extension for LJ | Holt's replacement?

    Animal instincts | 2024 defense shaping up to be elite | 2-year extension for LJ | Holt's replacement?

    The Little Animal got a big promotion. James Laurinaitis is now Ohio State's linebackers coach after serving as a grad assistant in 2023. Now, to be clear, Laurinaitis basically ran the LB room last season, but now he's a full-fledged position coach. How will this impact the Buckeyes on the field? What about on the recruiting front?
    What we also find interesting is that Ohio State's defense is shaping up to be elite in 2024. You could of course argue Jim Knowles' unit was elite in 2023 as the Buckeyes finished No. 3 in the country in total defense and No. 2 in scoring defense. Outstanding numbers? Definitely. Skewed just a bit because of an historically bad offensive season for many Big Ten teams? Sure. (The four-best defenses in the country last year were Big Ten teams, including Penn State, Michigan and Iowa.) But it was still an outstanding defense.
    However, we have little doubt the 2024 defense will be even better. The one area of possible concern is at linebacker, but the Buckeyes do have talent there ... and now a former All-American and long-time NFL standout as their LB coach.
    Also, what do we think about OSU defensive line coach Larry Johnson inking a 2-year extension?
    Jonah Booker and Dave Biddle discuss all things Silver Bullets on the Friday 5ish, who we want as Chris Holtmann's replacement and more.

The only Buckeye podcast

I love the morning 5, great insights but most importantly no longer that 30 minutes. Other Buckeye podcasts, blah, blah, blah for an hour or more!! If you can’t say it in 30 minutes or less, the rest is ego.

Had to stop listening

I used to love BM5 but stopped listening because of the hyper-sexualized ads. I don’t need to listen to Dan Rubin talking about the benefits of shaving my balls or “firmness” benefits of some garbage supplement. I also cancelled my subscription to 247. Pure trash.

Tex Buckeye ,

Too many ads

I have listened to this show since it was actually around 5-10 minutes every day. Now it’s “The Bucknuts Morning 5 minutes of ads and ad reads before they actually start to talk about The Buckeyes.”… Still love the content, would like less commercial spots. I know you have to make money, I get it.
